7:02 am
group holding hostages in the desert this morning. some of the hostages were killed. >> dozens of westerners were captured in a gas complex in algeria. the drama is still ongoing at that bp facility in algeria. charlie d'agata is in london with the story. good morning. >> good morning to you norah and charlie. arabic television networks are quoting local officials and saying 35 hostages and 15 kidnapers have been killed in an attack by algerian army helicopters at the plant. we can confirm through our own cbs news sources the algerian military had begun in operation to retake the facility and there were multiple deaths of both kidnappers and hosthostages. one report said the group was moving from one area to another by bus when the helicopters opened fire. the reuters news agency says
7:03 am
there are remaining surviving hostages including two americans. the al qaeda-linked group said they had taken 41 foreign workers hostage including at least three americans in re retaliation for algerian's cooperation for the situation in neighboring mali. >> john good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> what do we know about what happened on the ground? >> we know the algerians did have a plan. what we don't know whether that was based on a contingency or the plan was to retake the facility, it involved helicopters and firing from helicopters and that plan was executed today and of course as charlie reported we know there's casualties on both sides. >> what goes into a decision like that to carry out on attack to help these hostages? >> norah, that is one of the most difficult decisions in this game and that's because it's so high risk and usually it boils down to three things. number one you have an
7:04 am
opportunity, that means for instance the hostage takers and the hostages are separated for a time and they use that window number two, you learn that they have started killing hostages or are about to and that's when you make your move and why, or number three and that number three could be the case here you understand you're not going to be able to give them their demands and that you're giving them more time to retrench and fortify which will make a later rescue attempt almost impossible. >> who are the hostage takers? >> this is an offshoot a splinter group from al qaeda and the arabian, al qaeda and the islamic maghreb, a group specialized in kidnappings. they've raised over $90 million in these operations in the last ten years. this did not seem so be as much a ransom operation as a trade for a lot of their former colleagues who are in prison and of course it has ended in a way that has not accomplished that. >> the head of this aqim is someone who we know, he's actually from afghanistan and
7:05 am
now he's in northern africa. what does that tell us about al qaeda's presence in northern africa? >> this is about local issues but also about global jihad. somebody formed his own group but is still reading from the al qaeda network, mokhtar belmokhtar a one-eyed former afghan fighter,'s been in the business for a long time has about 500 people behind him. >> what do you worry about the most? >> what you worry is exactly what we're seeing do you have the ability with speed and agility to separate the hostages from the hostage takers kill the people you need to kill and rescue the people you don't and that is very difficult and that doesn't matter whether you're talking about the algerians or the navy s.e.a.l.s, you really have to plan it well and then hope and get lucky. >> what was the likely u.s. involvement? >> i would say that it would almost be unlikely with american hostages that there wasn't some advisory capacity here on
7:06 am
providing intelligence or advice or tactical advice. >> all right, we will continue to follow all of this as this story is breaking. john, thank you. i know there will be more information about certainly those hostages and what the u.s. response is going to be in the future today. >> i'm thinking also they failed in a hostage that was killed. president obama presented his plan for new gun regulations. the president is asking for several new laws including background checks for all gun sales, and in a cbs news/"new york times" poll 92% of americans say they want gun buyers to be checked out. nancy cordes is on capitol hill. nancy, what's been the reaction from members of congress? >> reporter: well, norah, democrats think they have an opening right now because public opinion has shifted in the wake of the newtown tragedy and there are some areas where the two sides say they agree but restricting guns is not one of
7:07 am
them. within hours of the president's announcement -- >> i'm calling on congress to pass some very specific proposals right away. >> reporter: republican senators were releasing statement after statement expressing their opposition florida's marco rubio told fox news restricting assault weapons would not prevent mass murder. >> i think the president doesn't have the guts to admit it, is not a believer in the second amendment although he states he is. >> reporter: mr. obama's proposals include reinstating the assault weapons ban which congress let lapse in 2004 and limiting the number of bullets in high capacity magazines to ten, but even getting those measures through the democratically controlled senate will be difficult. north dakota's heidi heidcamp opposes the gun restrictions. >> this is wrong headed. we need to be doing things that actually achieve a result and that's not something i am
7:08 am
convinced will achieve the intended result. >> reporter: there are other proposals on the president's list that have bipartisan support like cracking down on gun trafficking and imposing universal background checks. >> if you want to buy a gun, whether it's from a licensed dealer or a private seller you should at least have to show you are not a felon or somebody legally prohibited from buying one. this is common sense. >> reporter: washington state republican dave reichert a former sheriff, agrees with the president on that point. >> i think that's part of a total package, it should be examined. it could make a difference. >> reporter: house republican leaders say they'll wait to see what democrats can pass in the senate before they make a move and democrats say they're going to move quickly, holding hearings in the next couple of weeks. the vice president will likely make his best case when he meets with the conference of mayors mayors from both the right and the left in a couple of hours. charlie and norah? >> nancy cordes thank you. also in washington is david keene, president of the national
7:09 am
rifle association. good morning, david. >> pleasure to be with you. >> did anything that happened in newtown change anything about the nra or will your efforts simply to be resist resist resist? >> well we're very interested in answering the question of how do we make schools safer for our children. as you know from the very beginning after this happened we've argued that we need two things, one, we need to get at the root of the problem, which is the broken and devastatingly broken mental health care system we have in this country because most of these people all of them in fact are people with severe mental problems. secondly we need to provide security, because we can never predict how one of these people is going to act. most of the proposals that have to do with firearms are simply feel-good proposals that have been tried in the past and won't work or won't have any real impact. the real question that needs to be addressed is not what do we do about guns it's what do we do to make our children safe.
7:10 am
>> david, we have a new cbs news/"new york times" poll out this morning that shows 85% of nra households support background checks on all gun buyers. are you out of touch with your own membership? >> not at all. we actually are polling our members as well right now as well as other gun owners and second amendment supporters. you know the nra has been one of the biggest supporters of the so-called nic system which provides background checks. in the past when they were talking about checks at gun shows, most guns sold at gun shows do involve a background check because they're sold by licensed dealers, but -- >> 40% of guns are from private sales. would you support in private? >> let me make my point. at the gun shows we suggested to the bureau of alcohol, tobacco and firearms some years ago if they want everybody that makes an exchange checked, all they have to do is provide a booth and do it. they said no we weren't going
7:11 am
to fund it. the difficulty comes in when you're talking about you and me as next door neighbors and you buy a new shotgun and want to sell one to me how do you enforce a background check on that? we want to see the proposal but as a general proposition, the nra has been very supportive of doing background checks on purchasers through the system and secondly of adding the potentially violently mentally ill to the database which most states in the federal government have up to now not done. >> david, on the eve of the president's -- >> and that's good pardon me. >> on the eve of the president announcing these new gun proposals the nra put out this ad in which you mentioned the president's kids. jay carney the white house press secretary called your ad repugnant and cowardly. why is it not off bounds to use the president's kids or anybody's kids in a political ad? >> well the ad was not about
7:12 am
the president's kids. >> let me just stop you right there, david, because i looked at the ad again and read through the transcript you mentioned the president's kids three times. >> of course we did. of course we did, and we also had pictures of a number of other people including david gregory and others who send their children to schools that have protection and deride the idea that average citizens' children should be protected. that was our point. our point is not about the president's kids it's not about his kids it's about everybody else's kids. we think that one of the most important things we can do is provide security to the children of america and we don't think that's an inappropriate message. >> david keene thank you very much. we'll hear from the other side in a half hour mayor michael bloomberg will be here with us in studio 57. the feel good story of the college football season has come to a bitter end. notre dame's manti te'o found
7:13 am
inspiration in the death of his girlfriend on the same day he lost his grandmother. last night the story of his girlfriend was exposed as a hoax. chip reid is in washington good morning. >> good morning, norah. manti te'o's inspirational story was featured from espn to "sports illustrated." i reported on the story as well for "cbs this morning" on the day of the bcs championship game but it turns out we were all dupe by a fictitious story made up online. >> i last thing she said was i love you. >> reporter: college football manti te'o said his girlfriend lennar kekua died the same day his grandmother died. notre dame coach brian kelly awarded the game ball to the linebacker with te'o's girlfriend in mind. >> i want to award this game ball to lennay and i'd like man
7:14 am
tie ti to have this ball to take back to hawaii for her. >> i couldn't do it without the support of my family and my girlfriend's family. >> reporter: yesterday dead spin discovered kekua never existed. >> 22-year-old stanford grad gets in a near fatal car accident, contracts leukemia and dies, that's a big tragedy, going to be written up somewhere. it wasn't no, death notice no obituary, no announcement of her funeral. >> reporter: jack dickey is one of the reporters who broke the story after receiving an anonymous tip. >> this person should have had a high profile but had nothing except stuff on social media. >> reporter: jack swarbrik said his star linebacker was the target of deception. >> this was a very elaborate, very sophisticated hoax. manti was the victim of that
7:15 am
hoax. manti is the victim of that hoax. >> earlier, te'o released this statement, "over several months i developed an emotional relationship with a woman i met online, to realize that i was the victim of what was apparently someone's sick joke and constant lies was, and is painful and humiliating." te'o discussed the apparent hoax with school officials on december 26th, 12 days before notre dame lost the national championship game to alabama, a game in which te'o's poor play was scrutinized. >> manti te'o and the rest of this defense unable to wrap him up and bring down t.j. >> reporter: a woman on facebook was surprised to learn her image had been hijacked. >> we talked to this woman and said all of these photos are of me. i'm not dead. i have not had leukemia i didn't go to stanford and i don't really know who manti te'o is. we said oh wow. >> reporter: the surreal chain of events have some speculating
7:16 am
te'o may have been in on the hoax but as far as notre dame is concerned, they're sticking by their man. >> the single most trusting human being i've ever met will never be able to trust again in the same way in his life. that's an incredible tragedy. >> there is no word yet on when manti te'o is expected to address the media beyond his statement last night. questions remain as to te'o could not have known. deadspin identified a friend or distant family member of manti te'o who was behind the hoax. deadspin who also broke the brett favre scandal a year ago says this is the biggest story the site has had, over 2 million hits in eight hours. >> chip did we reach out to notre dame? >> we did repeatedly charlie that weekend before the bcs game and before our story aired we contacted them repeatedly asking for interviews with coaches or
7:17 am
te'o himself and they never returned our calls. >> after the hoax became apparent to him, did he do anything to say that i know this is a hoax or did he continue with the knowledge that it might not be? >> right, and chip as chip pointed out, notre dame knew about this on december 26th. chip's story ran in january, right, and you contacted notre dame and nobody told you that they knew about this, right? >> that's right, and i also interviewed people in hawaii. i was there covering president obama by coincidence and that's why we did the story from there and i went to his hometown of la la'aea i talked to neighbors, they were familiar with the story of lennay kekua. >> does notre dame understand how serious this is? >> i think they do and they understand they have to address this to a greater degree and it's stunning they knew december
7:18 am
26th and didn't make it clear to the world then and a lot of people are speculating perhaps that's why manti te'o did not play so well in that bowl championship game but they didn't want him to have to deal with it before the game. >> chip reid thank you. good morning. heading out the door today, lots of sunshine coming our way. chilly in the spots in the valleys, overnight lows in the 20s and 30s there. but a beautiful start to the day. we're going to finish up very nicely as well. right now, we've got 31 degrees in livermore. 27 and chilly in santa rosa. 40 into san francisco today. temperatures moderating a little bit. by afternoon, we should be up a good one to six degrees from yesterday's highs. mid-60s in the afternoon in some spots. >> announcer: this national weather report sponsored by petco where the healthy pets go.

john howard said he went off gun violence in his country and succeeded. he says the president can do it too. >> mayor michael bloomberg is here in studio 57 with us. welcome. >> thank you for having me. >> you believe the country wants change. >> yes. the country, i think it took a tragedy of 26 people, 20 children one time in a nice community in the suburbs. all the video was beautiful. people say they can't do that. keep in mind 33 people die from handguns every day and more die from suicides than those who get killed. >> we were with the president from the nra earlier this morning. >> yep. >> how are you going to overcome the opposition that dees rail's derailed all gun control in the past? >> what you have to do is convince congress this is the right thing to do.
7:31 am
you can't force them do it. it's democracy. you can make good arguments. i think you can show you can have your second amendment rights to bear arms for sport, for target practice for hunting, but -- >> people are afraid you're going to take guns out of their homes. >> it's a great visual to show people lined up at the store. keep in mind there are 300 million people in america and most are not at gun stores. somebody said, oh, well nobody's going to force the law or there will be an occasional gun dealer that goes around. we have speed limits. they save lives. that doesn't mean people won't go around it. guns are getting in the hands of youngsters, in the hands of criminals, substance abuse, and people with psychiatric problems. there are federal laws against it but the laws aren't broad enough. today 40% of them come from the
7:32 am
internet or come from gun shows. in the olden days, people brought pistols and rifles with a bolt and a single action. today you can buy something where if you keep pulling the trigger it keeps firing firing firing. they're only designed to kill cops. we just don't need assault weapons out there. there's not sporting about it. if you can't shoot the deer with two shots you shouldn't be out there shooting. >> i know you say you feel like this has been a time for change but it is true that congress will probably not pass much of what the president proposed yesterday. >> no. i think that's right this time but that doesn't mean you're not going to come back again. keep in mind we're likely to have nr tragedies like you saw in connecticut. each one of these builds on things. and also the public has the chance every two years to express themselves in congressional elections. i supported five candidates that the nra went against this time and four of them won. and think through our mayors

7:34 am
thing here is these violent children's games and two days ago they come out with their own violent children's game. come on. >> but do i hear you saying to norah that you agree that it will not likely be passed by this congress at this time? >> no, no. i'm hopeful that it will be but i'm telling you if itn't, the issue isn't going away. >> can i ask you one question because you've done so much study on this. the nra has millions of members. you're taking them on for the first time. does the nra represent gun owners or gun manufacturers? >> well the nra is getting its funding from gun manufacturers, and a lot of congressional people got money from gun manufacturers. in fact gun manufacturers are the only manufacturers in the country that i know of who have been granted from immunity in miss use of their products or products that they know will hurt people. the automobile industry doesn't have that kind of protection.
7:35 am
cbs doesn't have that kind of protection. charlie, there are lots of problems in the world. i can just tell you this. in new york state which has tough gun laws and our legislature just passed it. they just passed more stringent gun laws. our murder rate is so low compared to other places it's hard to measure it. our suicide rate is less than half of the national average. it's like 20%. if you don't have guns in the hands of the wrong people, then you don't have this carnage and that doesn't take away the ability for the average person. >> when you bring up handgun violence like that that's exactly why gun owners in america think that people who support gun control like you are going to take away handguns. are you proposing that? >> no. but are you saying we can't have a speed limit because people think they're never going to drive again? yes, there are always going to be people to say that and the
7:36 am
press will glom onto that because there's always two sides to every story. most people are much more rational. the american public has carried us 235 years in washington despite what they do in washington and i'm optimistic about this country going forward. >> thank you so much. good to have you here. >> thank you for having me. more problems. they have grounded the 787 jet including united states. peter greenberg will show us what this means for boeing and for passengers. that's next. and tomorrow we'll visit a new york wine maker who will be filling glasses at the president's inauguration on "cbs this morning." ♪ ♪ [ male announcer ] end your long week... with a weekend getaway. save up to forty percent on all weekend hotel stays. book by january thirty first at

a japanese safety inspector says the boeing 787 that made an emergency landing yesterday had a battery that was swollen and
7:41 am
leaking after it overheated. the faa has ordered all 787s in the united states to be grounded for safety inspections and this morning european regulators followed suit. cbs travel editor peter greenberg is here this morning. good morning. >> good morning. >> i feel like you've followed this from the beginning. this is big news. >> it is big news. it is highly unusual. i can think of maybe two times in the last 60 years that this agency has grounded an airline. one was in the late '50s to comet and then in 2001 after the crash of 191the dc-10, flight 191 in chicago. >> do all of these come from a single reason? >> we don't know that. we know it's based on an electrical input. more often than not it's been with electrical systems,
7:42 am
especially the lithium battery. >> everything argues that they had the parts made in some different places. some made in italy, some somewhere else and most in the united states. >> what the faa is looking at right now is not just design and material. they're looking at the production line and they're looking at the installation. and that's what's going to keep this plane on the ground until they figure out if there's a system problem. >> what does it mean for bowing? >> well, it's not exactly your best public relations history. remember this. they're grounding the planes since the time of its infancy. they have more than 800 planes on order. it's a very popular plane. their order books are very robust. they're going to work to resolving this. the bottom line is you've got plane right now for the first
7:43 am
time in my memory that's actually been put on the ground. they basically say you cannot fly this plane until we fix this problem. >> would you get on one? >> you asked me that question last week and i said yes. >> how long will it take them to answer these questions? >> well speed is of the essence on one level but they're going to take their time. remember, they have to look at the entire custody, the chain of custody of parts and materials and installation to figure out where the problems are. is it an installation problem or item problem. we've had two serious fires on planes already. one fatal with a ups plane last year over dubai where they catch fire. when they overheat very for planes on compression can handle that. one thing you do not want at

good morning, everybody. it is 8:00 a.m. welcome back to "cbs this morning." notre dame says football star man taiti te'o is the victim of a hoax after learning his online girlfriend who inspired him is not a real person. te'o calls it a sick joke. some of the v.i.p. hotel packages for the inauguration are pretty hard to believe. what can you get for a very high price? we'll show you. but first, here's a look at today's "eye opener" at 8:00. the algerian operations had started to retake the facility. there were multiple deaths of kidnappers and hostages. >> algerian groups opened fire in the sahara this morning. at least some of the hostages were killed. >> we're worrying about exactly what we're seeing which is do you have the ability, speed and agility to separate the hostages from the hostage takers kill
8:00 am
the people you need to kill and rescue the people you don't? >> now that president obama has presented his plans for new gun regulations, the real battle begins in congress. >> the real question is not what do we do about guns it's what do we do to make our children safe? >> the bottom line is that too many guns and the guns are getting in the hands of our youngsters, in the hands of criminals, in the hands of people with substance abuse, in the hands of the people with psychiatric problems. >> manti te'o's picture is all over. we were all duped by a fictitious story made up online. >> single most trusting human being i ever met, will never be able to trust him again in my life. >> more problems for boeing. they've grounded the 787 including the united states. >> you cannot fly this plane until you fix this problem. >> that is a dirty dog. i didn't start that. >> kris humphries, you're still married to him? >> yes i am. >> when are you going to wrap that up?
8:01 am
i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. it is a bizarre twist in the story of notre dame football star manti te'o. the heisman trophy runner up made national headlines when he revealed his grandmother and girlfriend died on the same day and their losses inspired him to play harder but now university officials say his girlfriend never existed. >> they say he was duped into an online relationship with a fictitious person and then led to believe she died of leukemia. the website deadspin found no records of that girlfriend. >> this was a very elaborate, very sophisticated hoax. manti was the victim of that hoax. manti is the victim of that hoax. the single most trusting human being i've ever met will never
8:02 am
be able to trust in the same way again in his life. that's an incredible tragedy. >> the notre dame athletic director you see getting very emotional there said te'o learned of the hoax in early december and told his coaches the day after christmas. the game was in january. school officials reject any speculation that te'o was involved in the hoax. he put out a statement saying that he is humiliated and as sad as this story is it's so confusing. i think it is just leading to a lot more questions. and i just wonder, how do you fall in love with someone who you've never met who you've never seen? especially in the age of skype and face time that you've never seen this person. >> the timing raises lots of questions. >> it does. >> especially since it was december 26th. >> the alabama game was january, earlier this month. >> right. >> notre dame is clearly standing by him. >> they are, indeed. >> to be continued. at least one american hostage reportedly escaped this morning from a natural gas facility in algeria, but other
8:03 am
hostages were killed when the algerian military attacked members of an al qaeda connected group who captured those westerners yesterday. charlie d'agata is following this fast-moving story in london. >> good morning, norah. they're quoting sources in algeria. 35 hostages and 15 kidnappers have been killed in an attack by algerian army helicopters at the natural gas plant. however, we're also hearing that a handful of hostages may have survived, including two americans and they're still being held. we can confirm through our own cbs news sources that the algerian military had enacted an operation to retake the plant and there are multiple deaths of both kidnappers and hostages. one report says the group is moving from one area to another by bus when the helicopters opened fire. the al qaeda linked group said they had taken 41 workers hostages including three americans in a siege yesterday. they were demanding an end to the ongoing military operation

8:05 am
a special screening. nine families sent a letter saying an invitation to the event was in their words disgusting offensive, and called the theater the killing field of our children. >> they're trying to use this as a stepping stone to try and boost ticket sales for their grand reopening. >> reporter: this is not the first time a community has debated what to do with a building associated with horrific violence. many wanted to tear down the school at columbine. others argued that would signify the student shooters had won. in the end a memorial overlooking the school was built and the library, sight of most of the killings, was converted to an aid try up. and in tucson a small memorial was constructed outside the grocery store where representative gabby giffords was shot and six were killed. for some it's important that the aurora theater remain open. >> somebody was shaking and break down by going to the theater. i don't know what to expect but it's just in my heart.
8:06 am
it's important to go back to that place. >> pierce o'farrill still has shotgun pellets in his chest, but he wants to go. wants to face the memories. >> it's just important for me for my healing to go back to that place. i mean i was very very close to death. for me i just think it will be therapeutic. >> it's taken six months for the aurora theater to reopen but sometimes these decisions happen much more quickly. a public meeting is expected to draw hundreds in newtown, connecticut, on friday to help determine the fate of sandy hook elementary. >> thank you. incredible story. in paris this morning, tour de france officials revealed next year's route for the world's most famous cycling race. lance armstrong said he quote, left it all on the table in his interview with oprah winfrey. that airs tonight. before his downfall he earned millions of dollars a year from endorsements. all of that money is now in jeopardy. jeff, good morning.
8:07 am
>> good morning. the news isn't getting any better for lance arm strong. this morning we have been told the international olympic committee has stripped his bronze medal from the 2000 olympics. when he was winning all of that companies threw big endorsements at him. not only because of his triumphs in cancer and cycling, but also because he positioned himself as being above the widespread doping. >> 17 to $20 million a year from nike. >> a doper. >> 2 to 3 million from anheuser-busch. >> michelobe ultra. >> wake up wow, did that really happen? >> another 2 to 3 million from oakley. >> yeah, it really happened. >> reporter: lance armstrong has likely made more than $100 million in endorsement deals throughout his career. now his brand looks a lot different. >> it really had a heavy hand in really trying to essentially crush people that have gotten in
8:08 am
his way so i think that scares people probably as much if not more than the doping issues. >> reporter: all of armstrong's major sponsored abandoned him in the fall. the chances of getting new ones brian socolow specializes in endorsement contracts. >> i can't think of any company right now that would want to align with lance armstrong. i think his brand is ruined at least for the short term. >> and armstrong's former sponsors are likely looking into claw backs, getting some of their endorsement money back because of the admission. >> that's admitting that he engaged in fraud with respect to these companies. he's made it easy for them to go after him and pursue a fraud claim. >> which makes it even harder for armstrong to earn money from speaking fees event appearance or triathalons moving forward. >> when you talk about the general opportunity there, i would argue that they pretty much dried up to almost nothing. >> i think this is so interesting because it gets to the heart of the financial
8:09 am
interest behind lance armstrong making this confession. he does also want to compete, as you've point you had out, in these triathalons. do you think people will want to pay him an appearance fee? >> we'll have to see. look it there's a large capacity to forgive, i think, sometimes in american life. if lance armstrongstrong wants to come back what he has to do is do it as a clean athlete. he has to be sanctioned. make 50 $100,000 a year to show up. it's not the same sort of megaendorsements we're talking about before but there is potentially a path he believes. >> and i've heard so many people say what he's done for cancer. as bad as what he did far outweighs that. we'll see. this interview tonight will be important. >> that's a good point. >> the story will live for a while because of all the lawsuits and everything else. >> from what we hear tonight, more details. yeah. >> i have a feeling we'll be talking

8:20 am
the good news is that while they're increasing in a number of states the reason they're increasing is because some states have different practices. some states like new york and new jersey make you go through judicial review in order to get a foreclosure. so there's this big backlog of foreclosures. now more foreclosures are going through the process and they're just getting processed. the good news overall is that the inventory is being cleared off the market. >> generally what does this mean for the whole housing mark? >> what it means for the whole housing market, and this is good news, we're seeing prices climb. the proceedian price of homes is rising. howevering there are still a number of homes in this country under water. 11 million under water in a severe way. 25% of their loan is still unpaid and 25% of their loan needs to be paid back and they are under water meaning that their mortgage is more than the value of their home. >> so what rebecca now, is
8:21 am
against the rules? >> what's against the rules. the biggest thing right now. dual tracking. this is where you are looking into foreclosure. your house that is in foreclosure and at the time that you're trying to work out with the bank a new deal a work-around with the bank the bank has simultaneously with another division processing your foreclosure so you could say everything is going to be okay and get a notice in the mail that everything's going to be okay but you've already been foreclosed on. they say you can't do that anymore. 120 days. if you're behind on 120 days the bank cannot start foreclosure filings on you and they have new rules on how your bills have to come to you. >> good information, rebecca jarvis. thank you. john mackie brought whole foods to america. he's never been afraid to giv
